Reusable To-Go Containers
Getting your meal to go from any of our dining halls? Take part in our Reusable To-Go Container program. Here’s how it works:
Our To-Go Container Program is free to join for Meal Plan members and only costs $5 per semester for those without Meal Plans. Just let a cashier at Schilletter or Fresh Food Co. Dining Hall know that you would like to participate and you will receive a To-Go Box for immediate use. The next time you would like a to-go meal, bring back your used To-Go Box and receive a clean one or a key tag to use for later. To- Go Boxes are not permitted for dine-in use in any of the dining halls.
